Since few members of BAO read my blog it has been pointed out that I made a statement there that ought to be aired over here. So here is the post I wrote on my blog. As of today, Thursday 13th, I am working on the next title. Di.
WORK IN PROGRESS December 2012
With Sara’s latest announcement that she will be shipping Sarah Bodman’s copies in January I think several jaws dropped with a resounding bump!One of them was mine.
Yes, I could have completed the work several months ago. Probably should have! But, not being driven by a deadline [something I think MUST be addressed before any new rounds are opened], I have chosen to wind up several other projects before year’s end, thinking that the generally slow time over the Christmas-New Year break would be ideal for making my books.
Well, we all know what Mr. Burns had to say about well-laid plans!
I will be emailing the members of my 3 groups with an explanation of grovelling apology for my tardiness and the decision I have come to.
In brief…I will try to have Sara Bodman’s copies shipped to Sara Bowen in time, but the full editions will take a little longer.
For the moment, here are some pictures of some of the work for ” The Daisy Chain.”
Below, Trial stages for “The Daisy Chain,” one of the titles I’m working on using The Turkish map fold.Why, yes! That is a remote control unit, along with box knife, pencils, eraser, cutting board…the usual book-y paraphernalia. The radio is my usual accompaniment/distraction, but I wanted the TV news update that day.
Below, Attaching the chain
Further explanation of the construction once all parties have received their books.
